I think the state's sales tax law also comes into play. My state has an AE presence, but no sales tax on shoes= no sales tax from shoebank
I couldn't make up my mind on the Amoks but finally decided to do so around 12AM. I bought the Snuff version.
It looks like they're not available at all now - in ANY color. A click on them gets you a dead link on the AE site.
That's a shame. Also the Ridgeways in Olive seem to be gone from the site.
Yesterday it showed me 75 items in the clearance section. This morning it shows 64.
I thought of pulling the trigger for the Olive Ridgeways but decided to pass. Not sure if I need a shoe an olive in my rotation. This said though, the speed at which they were gone from the website makes me reconsider my original decision.
When I went to the local AE store to get sized, I was surprised to learn that I am a 10D or E. I have been wearing 11.5 sized shoes for the past several years. It seems to me that AE shoes are just more true to actual size than the athletic shoes, or cheap dress shoes I used to buy. If you can go to an AE store it is well worth your time.
I ordered the same yesterday afternoon. I wasn't sure on the color but also went with Snuff. My size was not in stock and the website said "handcrafted in 3-5 weeks". I had hoped to get a pair of seconds for $99 but they never had my size, so getting firsts for $110 is a great deal. I would guess they took this one down for some reason, as there were many sizes available in all three colors yesterday and I would be surprised if they sold that many Amoks in one day.
